Test houses

To achieve fairness for consumers some gambling products must be tested by an approved Test House before they are released to the market.


Licence condition 2.3.1 - Licensees must follow the Commission's technical standards and with requirements set by the Commission relating to the timing and procedures for testing.

Test houses are approved to test compliance against our requirements and the technical standards, including:

All test houses must have full accreditation to BS/ENISO 17025 standards (opens in a new tab) and play a vital role in ensuring games are fair to consumers.
